Have you ever wanted to try a new hobby like knitting or glass etching? The start-up costs for a new hobby can be high when you have to buy basic tools for the activity.

Idea Exchange is here to help! The Clemens Mill location has circulating maker kits. You can actually check out a new hobby in a bag! Each kit includes basic tools and a book that can help you learn about the craft.

Each kit has a three week loan period and can be renewed twice.

Here are some of our many maker kits:
